About this item

Over the past two decades, the Arctic has evolved from being a remote region in international affairs to becoming an increasingly central concern of the global community. The issues of climate change, access to new energy resources, the development of new global trade routes, the protection of the natural environment and the preservation of indigenous cultures and languages have all come to be focused within this formerly neglected region.

This volume helps us to think carefully about how this area of the world should be best handled in future by offering a concise and accessible introduction to the Arctic Council. Now in its nineteenth year of operation, this innovative international organization is going through a period of new growth and challenges.This work identifies the major trends and directions of current Arctic diplomacy and the manner in which national, regional and international leaders and organizations can all make useful contributions in dealing with the complex agenda of environmental, economic and political challenges faced by this increasingly significant area of the globe.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of international organizations, international relations and the environment.
